How to get media attention for the right reasons
It’s now easier than ever to get your brand out there. Cheap programmatic advertising, email marketing, Facebook and Instagram activity as well as the old-fashioned press release, are all tried and true tactics. The trouble is, everyone’s doing it. The result? A market saturated with brands competing for attention, where frequently only the loudest – or most controversial – voices and the biggest budgets get heard.
So, aside from controversy, what makes you stand out? How can you be heard amid the clutter? What could you be doing to ensure you are on the radar of the right people at the right time? And just as importantly, how do you avoid the PR train wrecks everyone wishes had never happened.
In this SmartCompany special event we look at what makes good publicity. Featuring:
